Chicken thighs in honey sauce with cooked rice

Sticky and soft chicken thighs fillets in honey sauce.
This delicious meal is so easy and ready in 20 minutes. Serve it with cooked rice and enjoy the flavors!
If you want, you can replace the chicken thighs with chicken breast fillets. Thighs are a softer and withstand cooking on high heat without drying out, but you can replace them with chicken breast if you wish. I suggest cutting the chicken breast into thicker strips or flattening the fillet with a rolling pin to make sure it cooks quickly and evenly in the pan.
And… I always choose #međimurskopile because with the certificate “Without antibiotics” it guarantees that the chickens have never received any type of antibiotics at any stage of their life cycle.
